Big Brother
 
 
Third series (2001)

Known as The Battle, the third season of Big Brother was broadcast by the new station Yorin. It lasted from 6 September to 30 December 2001 (114 days). The presenter was Patty Brard (member of girl group Luv'). Due to a better cast of characters, this Big Brother series became "the talk of the town" again.[citation needed]

The format underwent some changes. Contrary to the former seasons, the viewers were only able to vote for their favorite nominee, and not for the one they wanted to leave. This system was introduced to prevent the most controversial housemates being evicted first. Equally important for the producers was that the new system would generate more phone calls, and thus more revenue.[citation needed]

The housemates were divided in two permanent groups. One group lived in a luxurious part of the house, the other group lived in poverty. On unexpected times a battle was announced, in which the two groups could fight for the right to live on the rich half. Each group had a captain with special duties and privileges (a Head of Household before that name was coined). At any moment each participant was free to challenge his leader in a captains-battle.

The series started out with only six housemates. The others were secluded in a villa in Spain and were only gradually introduced. Each new twosome started with a battle to determine which group they became part of. In Spain, where there were no cameras, a relation developed between Nancy and Richard. But when Richard finally arrived in Almere, Nancy was voted out at the same time. Another contestant never made it to the real house at all. Ellen was removed from the Spanish villa because she had made disallowed telephonic contact with the outside world. Rumor said she had gained possession of the telephone by having sex with a security guard.

The first week the occupants were only visible on streaming video. The producers thought that it would be prudent to start the television broadcast in the second week, so they could save up interesting material for a jump start. They were wrong. During that first week 9/11 happened in the United States. Because of the magnitude of the event the housemates were informed. Antillian Aldrico, who had many friends in New York, took the news bad and had to be removed after he started to behave confused. On the other hand, some housemates for a while had the feeling the event was not real. Even after they received newspapers and saw images, they thought they were the victim of a very cruel joke.

The outspoken personalities of this season yielded much viewing-pleasure but also lots of complaints about the high content of swearing, boozing and sex. Young teacher Andries ended up in bed with the transsexual Kelly, snogged with Audrey and had a sexual relationship with Diane. Before that, a very drunken Diane had forced sex with Frank. Streamwatchers who were witness to the event filed a complaint. However, neither the Ministry of Justice nor Big Brother took action. Housemate Gert-Jan gathered a big fanbase after he had been much maligned by the manipulative Coos and Pascal and had proposed to his girlfriend in the outside world.

The final battles, in which the last contestants had to collect the prize money, were copied from Fear Factor (another Endemol production). The lesbian beauty Sandy won the last popularity vote. Inspired by Kelly, she later used the money to pay for breast implants for her girlfriend and herself. Kelly gained a photo shoot in Playboy in which she could show off her newly gained femininity.

Notes[edit]

  • ^Note 1 : For the first 4 evictions, the Housemates did not nominate. All Housemates automatically faced the public vote, with 2 new Housemates entering the House when one was evicted. The exception to this was when 4 new Housemates entered following Audrey's eviction in Week 5.
  • ^Note 2 : Starting with Week 9's nominations, Housemates nominated in teams. Housemates could only nominate someone else from their team with each team having one person face the public vote. The teams were disbanded following Kelly's eviction on Day 97.
  • ^Note 3 : In Week 11, Leo, as captain of the red team, was forced to cast the tie breaker nomination against the blue team. Leo nominated Coos.
  • ^Note 4 : In Week 12, Sandy, as captain of the blue team, was forced to cast the tie breaker nomination against the red team. Sandy nominated Diane.
  • ^Note 5 : In Week 13, Andries, as captain of the red team, was forced to cast the tie breaker nomination against the blue team. Andries nominated Gert-Jan.
  • ^Note 6 : This week, the public voting were voting for a winner.
